About the event
The death consciousness movement has gathered momentum in recent years, with a growing appreciation that accepting mortality and the impermanence of everything can help us lead better, richer lives. Could it also help us engage more deeply with the climate and ecological crisis? Charlotte Haigh, funeral guide, end-of-life coach, death cafe host and co-founder of the Hive, will briefly present this idea. Then we'll explore our own feelings around death and impermanence with the help of the Gravetalk cards, which pose some thought-provoking questions. Sample question: "If you knew you were dying, what would you change about your life?" Come and join our small, friendly group for a session that will probably be a lot more uplifting than you might think!
